  1. Two Music Folders, One a Subfolder of the Other


    Windows 10 Version 20H2 I recently did some housekeeping in my Music folder and somehow ended up with two "Music" folders. Here's how they display in Windows File Explorer: As you can see in the screenshot, the icon for the main folder, the subfolder directly under libraries, has an underline under the icon. I'd like to move the second Music folder back up to the slot occupied by the Music folder with the underlined icon. But I don't have a clue how to do it. I'm worried if I try something simple and obvious; like renaming the primary Music folder, moving the secondary Music folder up one level, and then deleting the renamed primary folder; I might inadvertently mess up the way File Explorer keeps tracks of things. Another possibility would be to move all the subfolders of the secondary "Music" folder, up into the primary "Music" folder, and then delete the now empty secondary "Music" folder. I'd be grateful for some advice on the safest way to get this maverick folder back where it belongs. Will in Seattle a.k.a. "Clueless"

    Why does Windows 10 exit to parent folder up on dragging a file to a network folder?

    Your list is correct Shawn,

    The open 'subfolder' will step back into 'folder', with 'subfolder' selected in the list.

    This behaivour does not apply to local folders.

    Server is a regular Windows 7 PC.

    Two Music Folders, One a Subfolder of the Other

    LIST view for folders and subfolders - Win10


    Hi.

    I've only just installed Windows 10-- I waited til the last possible moment in hopes of having the least problem with bugs or other issues from a year ago.

    I suppose this isn't indigenous to 10, but since all my folders seem to be defaulting to Details view, I went looking for a way to make select folders AND their subfolders-- specifically, the Documents folder and Downloads-- show as List view.

    Anyway, I read a few things about Registry tweaks, but, although I'm pretty well-versed in PCs, I really don't understand much of what's discussed about Registry stuff; I do much better with a specific, step-by-step instruction.

    I appreciate the .Bat files Brink provide in his link, but alas, none of those options allow for List view. Is my ONLY option to individually change each one? Because, that seems so unnecessary in 2016! No idea why it wouldn't be an ultra-simple bit of code. But, do you know of a way to do what I'm asking?

    (Parenthetically, an awful lot of "Windows 10" tweaks I'm seeing online illustrate menus and views that aren't there in my Windows. Weird stuff.)

    Thanks!

    Jak
